Give access to a user

I have just installed a windows 2003 sever for learining purposes. I created a user kan64 so that I won't use Administrator. I gave the power user to Kan64. While still loged as Administrator, I turned on the 'Show icon in notification area when connected' in the start->settings->new connections->local area connection->properties to show a small computer icon in the notification area. I enable and disable the connection by right clicking the icon and I would like Kan64 to do the same.
When I logged in as Kan64, the icon is there but the enable, disable obtion is dimmed.
How can I give access to Kan64 so that he will be able to be able to enable or disable network connection.

Hi Kan64,
Try this:
Edit group policy on the server - either the default domain policy or create a new OU and link a new gpo. Then aneble the following policy. I wouldn't recommend using default domain policy in a production environment but if this is just a test network...
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > Network
Enable "Ability to Enable/Disable a LAN Connection

Deb :))
You'll need to make sure that Kan64 is residing in the new OU if you create one. Then run gpupdate /force to apply the policy.
